I am inspired and motivated by unanswered questions.

Bandana is a designer and a musician. Her strategic design practice uses co-design in the social sector to create public-facing services such as grant programs, business planning, and grassroots initiatives. Her arts practice uses expression, identity, and belonging to produce albums, conferences, experiences, workshops, and original design research in the arts and media sectors.

Bandana joined hcma in 2021 as our TILT Community Manager, and looks forward to helping our team continue to question convention, explore, and build connections with people and communities outside the traditional realm of architecture.

Bandana is a graduate of Parsons College of Design in New York, where she received her Masters in Strategic Design & Management with a President’s Scholarship. Her areas of research included how we might build creative and financially-sustainable livelihoods for artists. She also has a Bachelor’s Degree from Ryerson’s Radio & Television Arts program in Toronto.

Bandana adores animals, prefers thunderstorms to bright days, and loves a deep, dark tea. She currently lives in Toronto, ON.
